These Cheesy Creamy Potatoes are just as creamy and cheesy as the recipe title suggests! What separates this potato dish from many others is the shape the potatoes are cut into. For this meal, the recipe calls for cutting the potatoes into a French fry shape. I found that this made the potatoes cook to a better consistency and it also made them much easier for serving.
Despite it coming out looking like you slaved over it in a kitchen all day, this dish is relatively easy to prepare and cook. This would also be a great and unique addition to your Thanksgiving table this Thursday!
This might be a side to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. All kids love French fries so even those who are afraid to touch most foods will most likely gravitate towards and mindlessly devour these delicious Creamy Cheesy Potatoes.
Cook Temp: 400 Degrees F – Cooking Time: 75 Minutes
- 4 to 5 large potatoes cut into thin French fries or enough to fill a 9×13 glass baking dish
- 1 pint whipping cream- 2 cups
- salt and pepper over the potatoes and cream
- 2 tsp. parsley flakes
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- Cut your potatoes into thin french fry strips, and lay the fries, in a 9×13″ glass pan. (Arctic circle or McDonald’s fries type of thin!)
- Pour all of the cream over the top of the fries.
- Salt and pepper the potatoes very generously.
- Sprinkle at least 2 cups grated Cheddar Cheese over the top.
- Sprinkle Parsley flakes on top of the cheese.
- Spray a bit of cooking spray on the side of the foil that will face the cheese. This assures that the foil won’t stick to the cheese after it melts.
- Cover with foil, and poke a fork through the top of the foil, 2 or 3 times to allow a little steam to escape. This way, your cream doesn’t boil over into your oven.
- Place your potatoes in the middle of the oven. Cook at 400 degrees for about 1 hour, 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
- During the last 15 or 20 minutes of baking lower your rack one more step. This makes the bottom of your potatoes, brown and crispy.
- Remove potatoes from the oven, remove the foil and eat!
